Flamingoes on Flat Iron Mesa

Happy New Year – Welcome 2007!

Kitchen Prep / Planning – Since this was one of the more technical ascents in the early dawn hours for us newbies, we needed to thoroughly plan out the excursion. First, the Cheeseburger. Deep thought went into choosing the correct Cheeseburger……will the children be able to consume the entire Cheeseburger according to the rules and regulations of Summit Cheese. We were looking for a White Castle mini Cheeseburger, however, we were unable to locate one using the latest GPS technology. Our second choice was a 99 cent McDonalds Cheeseburger. On Monday night, we were on a mission to acquire eight Cheesebugers. We used the convienent drive thru option by ordering and then paying with as many Two Dollar federal reserve notes issued by the Minneapolis, Minnesota district. After nil reaction from the cashier to the odd notes, we had the necessary supplies for Tuesday’s ascent.

The Ascent – Tuesday morning we headed out towards Flat Iron Mesa (4,797 ft.) using the Garmin GPS to guide us. A successful bus ride brought us to within 50 yards of the summit. We approached on foot moving carefully on the snow-covered flanks of the summit cone. Imagine our surprise at spotting a pair of flamingoes on the summit. At the summit, lukewarm Cheeseburgers were produced and consumed. After finishing her Cheeseburger, Nicole proclaimed “I’m hungry.”

The views might have been impressive had it not been for the thick inversion. For other interested parties, Flat Iron Mesa Park has grills available for cooking freshly-prepared summit Cheeseburgers.

Welcome to the new Cheeseburgersummiteers Patti, Nicole, Anthony, and Ron!
